How do I bulk upload files to my user or group files?

You can upload several files at the same time to your user or group files.

Notes:

  • You can also bulk upload files by dragging and dropping the files into Canvas from your computer. However, sometimes too many files can cause problems. If you have more than 50 files, try zipping the files and uploading the ZIP file into your course.
  • Canvas does not support file uploads larger than 5 GB.
